Test results and reviews for Absolution's La Crème Réparatrice Regard04 April 2019
Why use an organic eye cream?
The eye area is the most fragile part of the face. The skin here is exceedingly fine (five times finer than the rest of the face) and easily marked by lines, etc., as it has so much to cope with! We blink about 10,000 times a day, and on top of that, many of us also apply and remove eye makeup every single day.
There are few sebaceous glands in the eye area, which means that the skin is more prone to dehydration. It's therefore essential to use products that deliver both moisture and nourishment. Problems linked to circulation are also quite common. Lack of sleep, poor cleansing habits and genetic predispositions (which you could happily do without!) can often cause dark circles and even under-eye bags to appear. So it's important to use an eye-contour product rich in active ingredients that promote circulation.
Is an eye cream really essential? Yes, it is! You may be tempted to use your usual face cream to moisturize the fragile eye area, but we really don't recommend it. Creams that are formulated for the face are not always ophthalmologically tested and have a richer texture that is too "heavy" for the fine skin around the eyes. You risk waking up with puffy eyes and, in the longer term, suffering from under-eye bags.
La Crème Réparatrice Regard from Absolution: an organic, anti-wrinkle eye cream certified by Ecocert
A day and night eye cream
La Crème Réparatrice Regard is packed with natural and organic active ingredients that work to repair, firm and nourish the skin. Made with 99% naturally derived ingredients, of which 59% are organic, the formula is guaranteed free of parabens, GMOs, mineral oils, phthalates, PEGs, and synthetic fragrances and colorants. Apply the cream both morning and evening. You can start using it as soon as the first signs of aging appear, when the skin around the eyes begins to lose firmness, or if you have very dry, dehydrated skin.
We designed this cream to slow down sagging in the eye area (including the eyelids), to reduce the appearance of expression lines, and to keep skin optimally hydrated.
Among the ingredients in La Crème Réparatrice Regard, you'll find:
- Acmella, with muscle-relaxing properties. It works to reduce the intensity of skin micro contractions, which are responsible for the formation of expression lines;
- Mamaku, the black tree fern from New Zealand. The Maoris have used it for centuries for its healing properties. Rich in polysaccharides, it helps to strengthen the dermis, "lift" the skin and support cell renewal;
- Hyaluronic Acid, known for its excellent plumping and hydrating properties. Used in its three forms (high, medium and low molecular weight), it helps to tone, tighten, hydrate and smooth, while maintaining the proper functioning of cellular cohesion;
- Cornflower, ideal for soothing and repairing tired, irritated and allergy-prone eyes. It's also known to tone the skin, making it a valuable ingredient in our eye cream.
+ 16 botanical extracts, including Horse Chestnut extract, rich in flavonoids, for its powerful firming and softening properties; Euphrasia macerated oil with calming properties; Summer Snowflake with muscle-relaxing properties; restructuring Centella Asiatica and Yarrow, Neroli, and Chamomile hydrosols.
A tip from Absolution: use La Crème Réparatrice Regard around the lips to help slow down skin aging in this fragile area.
Is La Crème Réparatrice Regard only recommended for mature skin?
La Crème Réparatrice Regard is an anti-wrinkle cream that's aimed at all women – and men, too! – who want to fight the signs of aging in the eye area: droopy eyelids, expression lines that are gradually forming, loss of firmness, features that are more easily marked by lack of sleep, etc. It's also ideal for younger people who suffer from dryness and dehydration around the eyes, or who simply want to prevent fine lines from appearing.
Is La Crème Réparatrice Regard really effective?
At Absolution, we don't like false promises. La Crème Réparatrice Regard has been tested by a panel of 42 women aged 25 to 59 years old, who gave it a score of 4.3/5.
